Singapore's Changi Airport, China's Hainan Airlines and Malaysia's AirAsia Group are among the winners at this year's World Travel Awards Asia and Australasia held in Vietnam last week.

Changi Airport was adjudged Asia's Leading Airport and Hainan Airlines was awarded Asia's Leading Airline.

AirAsia, the Malaysia-based low-cost carrier that runs services in Asia and Australia through subsidiaries in Thailand, Indonesia, India and Philippines, said on Tuesday that it bagged two awards at the recent World Travel Awards Asia and Australasia held in Vietnam last week.

The airline won the awards in the Asia's Leading Low-Cost Airline and Asia's Leading Inflight Service categories.

"It's an honour to be named Asia's Leading Low-Cost Airline for the fourth time. This is further affirmation that we are, without a doubt, the best budget carrier in the region," Tony Fernandes, AirAsia Group CEO, said in a statement.

The AirAsia Group serves 120 destinations with its fleet of 170 aircraft and has operations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, India and Japan.

AirAsia (India) Limited is a joint venture between Tata Sons Limited and AirAsia Investment Limited. The airline currently operates flights from Bengaluru and Delhi to Chandigarh, Goa, Guwahati, Imphal, Jaipur, Kochi, Pune and Visakhapatnam.
